10th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing
Vietri sul Mare, Italy - December 18-20, 2013


Computing systems including hardware, software, communication, and networks
are growing towards an ever-increasing scale and heterogeneity, becoming 
overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more critical with the 
ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and other pervasive systems. To cope 
with the growing and ubiquitous complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses 
on self-manageable computing and communication systems that exhibit 
self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, 
self-protection and other self-x operations to the maximum extent possible 
without human intervention or guidance. Organic Computing (OC) additionally 
addresses adaptivity, robustness, and controlled emergence as well as 
nature-inspired concepts for self-organization.

Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of 
losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trust 
and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and in pervasive infrastructures 
are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and cooperation of various 
users, systems, and services. Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (TC) aims at 
making computing and communication systems as well as services available, 
predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable, 
persistent, security/privacy protectable etc.

A series of grand challenges exists to achieve practical autonomic or organic 
systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the series of ATC 
conferences has been held at Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges (China), Hong 
Kong, Oslo, Brisbane, Xian, Banff, and Fukuoka.

The conference will be a 2-day event featuring technical presentations
of 8 full papers and 9 short papers.

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing 
(ATC 2013) will be held in Vietri sul Mare, Italy which will be organized
by Second University of Naples, Italy. 

ATC 2013 is co-located with ICA3PP-2013 and UIC-2013.
